Author Art Cullen and narrator Chris Henry Coffey do the near impossible by making the audiobook listener care about the intimate details of life in an Iowa small town. With a delivery as folksy and homespun as the topic, Coffey recounts Cullen's exhaustive history of Storm Lake and his own family and neighbors. Cullen won the Pulitzer Prize for editorials in the tiny STORM LAKE TIMES that exposed environmental hazards caused by big business. Here, in great detail, he describes the often hand-to-mouth lives of farmers and makes it interesting. He also covers the challenges facing a small newspaper doing its best to keep residents informed--even when the news is hard to take. The writing is crisp and economical, like a good small town newspaper's should be. M.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2018]
